PALE HORSEMAN Release New Single "Grigori"

Chicago sludge lords PALE HORSEMAN have released their crushing new single "Grigori" today on all streaming platforms. The song is taken from their upcoming split with BUZZHERD which will be released on October 28, 2022 on vinyl and digital formats.

Vocalist Andre Almaraz comments "The song "Grigori" is about the famous historical figure, Grigori Rasputin. Nicknamed "the mad monk," the story of Rasputin's life is very interesting but the story of his murder in December 1916 has become legend. I have been to the palace in Saint Petersburg, Russia, which was the exact location where he was brutally attacked and murdered by a group of assailants. According to Russian legend, Rasputin was poisoned by food and drink to no affect, then beaten and shot multiple times including once in the chest and once in the forehead. After all this, he was still able to battle his attackers but ultimately was overcome. They wrapped his body in cloth and dumped it in a nearby river. Several weeks later his frozen body was found and an autopsy was performed. The cause of death was ruled as drowning despite all the other physical trauma he had endured as if he were superhuman. "
